Partnering for Health

Saint Louis University School of Medicine’s commitment goes far beyond physician education. It seeks to improve the health of our diverse community by connecting others to health care services, reducing health inequities, and forming partnerships across SLU, SSM Health and St. Louis.

Programs delivered through the van will help reduce pre-existing health care barriers in our city — servicing areas where community members have less access to health care facilities, transportation, or the technology to utilize telehealth options. Additionally, these programs will include training that prepares health care providers and medical students to address unmet health and wellness needs across the region. 

Before the van puts its wheels on the road, SLU and its dedicated partners are working to establish trust, develop community relationships, and plan the van’s programming. Through ongoing partnerships, SLU reaffirms its commitment to collaborate and serve the greater community and build a healthier St. Louis.

In preparation for launching the mobile van, current efforts center on providing health care services to those coming out of incarceration, whether they are pretrial, out on bond or being released from prison. By working directly with our state’s corrections department and additional St. Louis re-entry programs, SLU and its partners will address behavioral and emotional health needs, provide routine health care and case management support, and help people adjust to life after incarceration. 

As mobile van plans evolve, SLU and its partners will seek ways to make health care in St. Louis and its surrounding counties stronger and open to all.
